Hey guys i was wondering if anyone could help clarify a question for me.....
after interpreting this TAF, what would you say the cloud base and coverage is at time 0000?
sorry i know its a trivial question but i just need some clarification on whether when deciding cloud coverage we accumulate the two cloud layers.
The lowest cloud base is the 2-3 Oktas at 1500ft.
If you are referring to the cloud ceiling in the other hand, the AIP defines that as:
"Ceiling: The height above the ground or water of the base of the lowest layer of cloud below 20,000FT covering more than one-half of the sky."
So, if you are referring to the ceiling, it is 3500ft, with the BKN layer.
